I’m Married! :-)

We had a perfect day. I know people always say that, but for real, it could not have bee an ounce better.

The weather was a little cold while we took our pictures, but it never rained, and once we left the church, it was beautiful and sun shining!

Here are some pictures I ripped off facebook until we get our pro-pics.

They are out of order…sorry!

The unity sand ceremony…

Leaving from the church in a cloud of bubbles

After the sand ceremony, Tyler prayed over us. It was beautiful and was the only time I really cried.

My AMAZING bouquet. I cried when I saw it because it was perfect!

Almost there!

Ok, I woke up early and can’t go back to sleep. Why? BECAUSE I GET MARRIED TODAY!

Everything has worked out so perfectly, I’m a little worried what will go wrong today…

Here is what we’ve been up to since I got home-

Thursday, we decorated the church…

We got pedicures….

We decorated the rehearsal dinner space (with a little child labor). 🙂
We picked up my friend Amanda from the airport at 11 p.m. (she was due to arrive at 8!)
Friday we decorated the reception (we finished about 3o minutes earlier than expected! Everything worked out so well!)
We had a bridal luncheon at On the Border with the cutest cake! (the ribbons coming out of the side were bridesmaid charms…each girl pulled one out of the cake to reveal her “fortune”….love, luck, adventure etc.)
We had our rehearsal (sorry..Mom took all those pics…) and rehearsal dinner at the bowling alley! We ate wonderful BBQ (even if we were a little crammed into their party room) and then bowled a few games and it was SOOOO FUN!

It was a house divided theme….
Look at my precious cousin/ringbearer Luke bowling!
Me and some of my girls…
Tyler and some of his pledge brothers.

OMG I just can’t believe its today! See you on the flip side!

Going home…then going to the chapel!

Ok, I’m heading home in a few short hours (after my class this evening…boo for a presentation on my last day here).

I CAN NOT wait to get home.

There are so many little things to get together. We are decorating the church tomorrow. I can’t wait to see all the bows, candles, aisle runner and everything come together! We will also decorate the rehearsal dinner room Thursday. We are doing a “house divided” BBQ at the bowling alley then bowling. We will have Razorback and Sooner and football decor.

Then Friday is the reception day. OH MY we have lots to do. We have to do all the centerpieces, chair covers, everything. We will get it done, and I’m sure it will be a blast putting it all up…but I know it will be long days.

I have so much anxious energy today. I was up at 4:15 and today has been dragging on. But I’ve gotten a lot of random things done (laundry, cleaning the tub, I even made my bed…which never happens!). I just can’t wait to be gone at 5:30. The car is already loaded.

If I don’t have time to blog while I’m home, see you on the other side!

Pushing Forward

Well, its wedding week! Woohoo!

Only problem is, I MUST focus on school until I leave Wednesday.

See, I have a big presentation Wednesday afternoon, class to teach Wednesday, and then class next week when we return from the wedding.

So I gotta focus and get stuff done.

Good news is…I’m currently in the library working. I finished grading my midterms, read for this week and next, wrote my paper for tomorrow, got my presentation ready. I think I’m mostly done. But if I just focus on the wedding and everything, the next 30 hours will go by sooooo slow. So I’m focusing so I can make it through.

Wednesday at 5:30 when I leave for home, I’ll be in wedding mode.

I am so excited though. Tyler spent the night last night and he said “Next time I’m here with you, we’ll be husband and wife.” That sounded great.

Back to productivity….
